Welshman Leaves Forge FC
As widely expected, 27-year-old striker Emery Welshman has left Hamilton-based club Forge FC.
We had stated that the striker would be outbound to Israel in the near future, and this appears to be case: Welshman was recalled from loan by his parent club FC Cincinnati, who then mutually parted ways with the player.
The Mississauga-born striker had started eleven times for the hammer in Canadian Premier League action, registering three goals and two assists. He was called up to the Guyanese national team for the 2019 Gold Cup alongside Forge FC goalkeeper Quillan Roberts.
Emery is a true professional and has been a big part of our success here in Hamilton so far this season. By showcasing his talents in the Canadian Premier League these last four months, doors have opened for him. We wish him nothing but success in this next step in his career.”Bobby Smyrniotis
While the news will be tough for Forge FC fans to hear, this is exactly what the Canadian Premier League was designed to do: give players crucial minutes on the pitch in a professional environment so that they can showcase their abilities, develop their talent, and make good career moves instead of falling through the cracks.
Given that Isreali Premier League club Hapoel Haifa had previously announced that he would be arriving in the near future, it’s more than likely that this is who Welshman will sign for.
Welshman’s last appearance for Forge FC came in the club’s historic 2-1 CONCACAF League win over Antigua GFC, where he was substituted out in the game’s dying minutes so that a healthy contingent of Forge FC fans could see him off.
